Our thoughts are with the family of a four-year-old boy who sadly died from severe burns after a fire in their timber house on Queensland’s Darling Downs on Tuesday night.
The boy’s three-year-old brother, Jeremy, remains in a critical condition at Lady Cilento Hospital, reports Daily Mail.
A spokesperson for the hospital confirmed Blade, four, had passed away in hospital on Wednesday afternoon.
The boys’ father, 34, managed to drag his children outside as the blaze completely destroyed their timber house at Weranga around 7.30pm on Tuesday.
‘The two children suffered 89 to 90 per cent burns to their whole body and the father suffered burns to his arms,’ Queensland Fire and Emergency Rescue spokesman Cameron Ashmore said.
The father was airlifted to the Royal Brisbane Hospital in a critical condition, while his two boys were airlifted to the Lady Cilento.
The father’s condition is now stable with burns to his arms.
RIP little man. Our thoughts are with the family at this tragic time.
